The Friday Five: Preparing for NYC

I’m in New York City this weekend after a very crazy and emotional week. I’m happy to be spending time with my sister, brother-in-law and my sweet little nephews. I’m also going to be reunited with one of my running buddies and we’ll be running the NYC half on Sunday. My winter-training plan has been less than perfect so I imagine I’ll be taking a lot of walking breaks.

Here are five things that I brought along this weekend.

1. Sub-zero running tights from Running Skirts.

2. Antiperspirant – thanks Degree! It will definitely be put to the test at the half-marathon.

3. LeSportsac weekender bag – great for packing extra things (i.e., new purchases!).

4. My new polka dot scarf. I always bring a scarf like this on trips – especially for the flight.

5. My Canon PowerShot SD1000. It’s small but mighty. I don’t ever leave the house without it!

      I made it to the finish line and got a snazzy new medal for my collection. It was amazing to run through Times Square (and Central Park and along the river). Thanks for your encouragement!

        You’re awsome, Jordana. How many medals do you have on your collection now?
